ARISTO – Suspended for time being

Posted on

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the suspension of the Aristo Monthly event.  I hope that this is temporary.  Due to real life health and family issues I am not currently able to dedicate enough time to organise the event.  Many apologies to the designers who have been so loyal and the customers who have been so enthusiastic.  If and when things change I shall make a further announcement.

Applications are now open for our October round of Aristo.  The theme this time is A GOTHIC BALL.  It’s about much more than ballgowns and tuxedos.  Think dark and daring, evil, deadly and decidedly creepy – this is the theme behind – A GOTHIC BALL.  Let your creative imagination run wild – just keep it dark, gothic, and disturbing!

August Blogger of the Month – Heidi Rewell

Posted on Updated on

Aristo is very proud to have a group of dedicated and especially talented bloggers to help with the publicising of the designers’ exclusive designs each month.  Under the guidance of our hard working  Mąrɨssą ÇHÜ  (mariselaa) they have produced some amazing images and generated a lot of interest for the event.  I am very proud to announce the inaugural Blogger of the Month award.  Each month myself (Moeko Tatekana) and  Mąrɨssą ÇHÜ  (mariselaa) will review the blog posts made and will pick someone to receive this award.

I’m very excited to announce that this month’s winner is the extraordinary Heidi Rewell.  Heidi has been blogging for the Aristo event since the start and has consistently produced high quality content on a regular basis.  You can see Heidi’s work over on her blog Alternative Fashion in SL and on Flickr.

Applications OPEN! September – The Grand Tour

Posted on Updated on

Applications are now open for the September round of Aristo.

THEME: The Grand Tour



The Grand Tour was an extended vacation that young British aristocratic nobles took throughout Europe.  It was at the height of its popularity in the 18th & early 19th centuries.  Although this was an exclusively male pastime, at the ARISTO event, and in keeping with 21st century equality, we encourage designs for all genders/species.   As described on the Wikipedia page:

The primary value of the Grand Tour, it was believed, lay in the exposure both to the cultural legacy of classical antiquity and the Renaissance, and to the aristocratic and fashionably polite society of the European continent. In addition, it provided the only opportunity to view specific works of art, and possibly the only chance to hear certain music. A Grand Tour could last from several months to several years.

Anything reminiscent of the luxury and excess that was a hallmark of the Grand Tour, maybe a hint of the Renaissance, all of these ideas are the background for THE GRAND TOUR.  Designers’ exclusive items should be based around this idea.  Any other items sold can be non-themed as long as the exclusive(s) are thematic.
